From the cover: “This is the book of the 12-part television series of the same name, which is fronted by actress Susan Penhaligon. The first part looks at vegetables, fruit and herbs. Katie Thear begins with an ingenious and stimulating chapter on growing food indoors, and then goes on to the traditional outdoor food garden, giving advice which is sensible yet packed with lovely ideas. Freezing, chutneys and jams, butter and cheeses, but also a brief look at traditional crafts. The section on the house concentrates on energy saving and reducing costs in the home. Finally, a great deal of useful information is given on such questions as how to co-operate with others, what the law is and where appropriate organizations may be contacted.”
